As some 1000+ crew descend on site for the 8th build for Noisily, the woods are once again a hive of activity as structures rise from the forest floor towards the canopy above.
The Mind Body Soul area, now in its 4th year at Noisily and half the age of the festival itself, has continued to grow organically as our festival family grows year on year with many beautiful offerings & new spaces to explore.
We are excited to announce that we have made the decision to move the Mind Body Soul into the woods, having opened a stunning new area which we have spent the year clearing and cultivating. In doing so the team have created a truly stunning space amongst the trees where you can meander, explore and stumble across a plethora of healing modalities, talks, workshops and more.
In the spirit of non-duality, we are keen to integrate the Mind Body Soul attractions in the main arena, and have some incredible artists and healers bringing their skills to the forest floor.
Here are some of the things you’ve got to look forward to next weekend.
Noisily Stage Sound Healing
Sound maestro Fabio Garces brings Sonic Enchantment to the Noisily Stage, taking you on a deep shamanic sound journey through our enormous Funktion One Sound System, with the 32 inch bass bins offering a breadth of frequencies allowing you to reconnect, rebalance & float off into Sunday.
Prepare to connect with the Earth, our inherent nature and the wisdom that is available to us in this deep intuitive place within. For this special session on the main stage sound system there will be a focus on Amplifying natural Earth frequencies and incorporating shamanic sound principles used in South American plant medicine ceremonies.
Sonic Enchantment integrates a mixture of old world and new world technology, the performance fuses underground electronica, binaural frequencies, hypnotic melodies, ethereal soundscapes and ancient sacred sounds. The resulting effect serves to create personal experiences that span a wide range of transformative benefits such as restoration and the re-emergence of balance and inner calm. Definitely an experience you don’t want to miss, and a perfect way to kick off our last day at the festival. See you Sunday morning.
Breathpod founder teams up with Techno wizard John Monkmon again to craft a fully immersive breath & sound experience – conscious connected breath with a live set designed to activate energies, root to crown.
Inside the Nooks of our Mind Body Soul
Moving into the woods have given us more opportunity to connect with nature, absorbing the energy of the woodland we are privileged to call home. In amongst the trees of Mind Body Soul you’ll stumble across the following…
The founder of our Mind Body Soul area, Flo Cannon-Audley is offering free “free movement” sessions on Thursday at 6pm, and Friday afternoon at 3pm.
Feel free and let your body flow. Tune into the internal physical experience of movement and shake out all the kinks before you hit the dance floors.
This free movement exercise taps into the felt sense of the physical being to reveal the innate wisdom of the body, encouraging you to be your greatest ally and teacher. Cultivate moment to moment presence with movement and music.
Join Naemma, Shakura & Thorayya for this ancient form of healing meditation to connect into ourselves, all the beautiful nature around us and the cosmos. Balance & harmonise in the woods at 12pm daily throughout the weekend.
Qigong, a healing form of moving meditation drawing on the four thousand year heritage of Qigong, recalibrated for our contemporary times by Dr Pang Ming to bring re-alignment with nature as the world around us rapidly changes in the anthropocene era.
It unifies mind, body and soul – strengthening, healing and harmonising the connections between the different aspects of ourselves internally, and the connections between us in our respective communities and societies, and with all of nature and the cosmos itself. It is profoundly nourishing and brings deep inner peace.
International Hunyuan Qi therapists Naeema Hales, Shakura Meddings and Thorayya Mears study directly under Master Yuantong Liu in China who has been studying and teaching Zhineng Qigong for over forty years and has been taught directly by Grandmaster Dr Pang Ming.
Bringing their unique flavour & creativity to Noisily, Unami will be offering different performances & rituals each day, inviting you to connect & join in weaving meaningful magic in the woods together.
